You say you belong to Australia my friend And rightly you’d die for this land to defend But let us be honest, it’s sad but it’s true Australia my friend doesn’t belong to you Our country’s been sold by the powers that be To big wealthy nations way over the sea We couldn’t be taken by bayonets or lead And so they decided to buy us instead And talking of wars and the blood that was spilled The widows, the crippled, the ones that were killed And I often wonder if their ghosts can see What’s happening now to their native country I wonder if ghosts of the fallen can see The crime and corruption and vast poverty With a lost generation of youth on the dole Who drift on life’s ocean without any goal I once had a dream of our country so grand The rivers outback irrigated the land With towns and canals in that wasteland out there And big inland cities with work everywhere With profit from farming and factory and mine Was used to develop a nation so fine Then I woke from my dream into reality That the wealth of our nation goes over the sea Yeah you say you belong to Australia my friend And rightly you’d die for this land to defend But let us be honest, it’s sad but it’s true Australia my friend doesn’t belong to you
